Donate to Natural Marriage in Maine!

From the Digital Network Army:
You are probably aware of the marriage campaign going on in Maine as they're working to keep marriage defined as between a man and a woman. I started talking with Stand for Marriage Maine's campaign about a week ago and have become aware of the pressing need they have for cash donations. Their coffers have run completely dry and they still have a month to go in the campaign. Maine is the second state that has had the opportunity to actually vote on their marriage law. If we lose Maine, the opposition will be able to say that people voted it in.

I was on twitter yesterday and saw a link go by with the comment "I'm obsessively compulsively hitting refresh---donations are pouring in for equality!" I went to the link and they had a goal of 30,000.00 with a graphic showing how much had been donated. I looked at the number and hit refresh. Every time I refreshed, the number increased. In the five minutes that I monitored the page, the amount had risen thousands of dollars. Imagine what damage they can do with that kind of firepower unopposed.

The opposition is martialing it's forces and donations are pouring in to their coffers from gay marriage advocates all over California and other states nationwide. After their stinging loss in California, they can't afford to lose Maine. They're pouring all their attention and resources into the state hoping to tip the election. We need to help our brothers and sisters in Maine. There is a dire need for donations. We can't afford to lose this fight. You can't protect marriage with empty air. Please forward this message to friends, neighbors, churches, ANYONE who can help! and let's get them the help they need to win.

Stand for Marriage Maine's Campaign page is here, click to donate:

It's our turn to help a neighbor! Send this out to anyone you know who also might be able to help! A little from many can go a long way.
Please donate whatever you can. Even $5 will make a difference! In truth, we can't afford to NOT help our neighbors in Maine. Should Maine follow California's example it would be a phenomenal message to the nation about how the citizens of this country truly view the sacred nature of marriage.

I just read a banner that said: I support marriage, because every child deserves a mom and a dad. That is really the heart of all this isn't it? Stand for Marriage Maine! Our little ones deserve our best efforts.
